As a tribute to the career of Ducati’s legendary Superbike pilot, Ducati Art introduces "Honor & Glory", an art collection dedicated to Troy Bayliss by Polish expressionist artist Pat Kuleta.
Troy Bayliss winner of 3 World Superbike Championships symbolizes the true Ducatista spirit in all its facets. Troy Bayliss not only has played a key role in the Superbike achievements of Ducati, he has made the Ducati fans voice their passion. A truly great and genuine champion that has marked the history of Supebike racing
Inspired by his legend, driving style and attitude Pat Kuleta has created 11 artworks, which interpret the performance of Troy Bayliss and the sensations of World SBK racing.
Pat Kuleta about his artworks: Light, energy, speed, a fracture of time in which anything can happen. The love for details. An expressionistic madness of all mechanic parts inside the roaring superbike on the racetrack. "As much as Troy loves what he is doing I love to show his soul with my eyes".
The Troy Bayliss "Honor & Glory" Collection is reproduced as a limited fine art giclée prints edition. Collectors have the possibility to choose the media of reproduction of their favorite artwork amongst Fine Art Paper, Canvas, Cultbond or Cultplex. They can also choose the desired artwork size according to their tastes and interior design style.
Prices range from 100€ to 995€ ($150 – $1,500 USD), depending on the media of reproduction and the size.
Each artwork is individually crafted to the highest museum quality standards and custom made to the customer’s specifications. The WSBK artworks are available exclusively from Ducati’s art web store: ducatiart.com
Pat Kuleta was in Poland and brought up in the Kaszuby region. He has studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. He has lived for few years in Manchester, England. Now he is working and living in Warsaw. "To be an artist is knowing exactly how coffee tastes at 6 in the morning after 48 hours of continuous work". "It’s all about passion for the art".
Pat is inspired and driven by European expressionists like Egon Schiele, Josef Fenneker, Franc Marc, Francis Bacon and Lyonel Feininger. The bold sometimes harsh but sensitive paint strokes, vivid and dark colors all mixed together give his works utterly powerful looks.
This is what he is interested in. He likes to work with all kinds of artistic media and is convinced that real artists should try everything and not to be afraid of reaching for a whole different medium which could help them mature artistically.
The artworks from the Troy Bayliss "Honor & Glory" Collection are reproduced exclusively in limited editions of 21 reproductions each. 21 is the legendary number of Troy Bayliss’s bike. A certificate of authenticity helps guarantee a collector value.
The Ducati Official Fine Art Prints Collection is an artistic venture between Ducati and Cultwork. Cultwork is a unique lifestyle fine art brand and international artist’s network, which creates and crafts fine art print editions in collaboration with iconic brands.
